Disneynutt, hang in there. Those creases can be challenging. I neve felt like I had a realy tight seal around my belly button area but I would move the flange over as far as I could away from that area. Also, I don't know if your flange is oval but I remember the nurse telling me to turn it the opposite direction, which I never would have thought of in a million years. I only had a few minor leaks but you will likely feel or smell something. Once you get the hang of it, it will all become second-nature to you, plus, your takedown will be here before you know it. You're doing great!
